A very good 3D animation, all in all. I give it 8 stars, and for good reason. Although each episode is relatively short to most animations on TV (3 minutes) i find it worthy of watching.
The simple slapstick comedy features Bernard, a polar bear who finds life in civilisation isn't all it's cracked up to be, often in rather violent contact with characters (other animals, like his nemesis, a lizard) and objects, though always in a truly amusing way. Although to some it may seem a waste of technology, three minutes of falling, bumping and devices not working, to the trained eye it will reveal some not too shabby entertainment.
The animation of the environment about Bernard is magnificent, and i am a fan of cell and 2D, so that's a compliment. The texture isn't too exaggerated, and has a nice appearance.
Certainly worth turning on the box for, especially if imbertween other good shows. I have seen a good amount of episodes and am happy with what i'm seeing.
